Academic Classrooms and Lecture Halls

Please allow for at least 10 days to have your space request approved. Requests are submitted through Conference & Event Services and then approved by the Registrar’s scheduling team only after all academic classes, testing, exams, and other academic requests have been finalized. As a result of this, there may be extended delays in receiving approval for your space.

To inquire about our newest venue, The Peter George Centre for Living and Learning, please contact us at
